“A hidden gem”
Reviewed 16 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

The house is set on it's own land beside a river that runs into Lough Derg. There are 3 kayaks, a double kayak, a set of high quality bikes, fishing rods, wetsuits, safety equipment that come with the house. In addition there is a boat house a short walk downstream that contains a canadian style canoe for exploring the river/lake.

The house has four spacious bedrooms, including a downstairs bedrooom suitable for reduced mobility visitors.

This part of Lough Derg is very tranquil. It was amazing to see the wildlife out on the lake from the kayaks. The local cafe/shop (The Cornerstone), in Gorteeny does great coffee and there is a great place for lunches in nearby Whitegate.

House was comfortable and adequate for our needs. Lots of room with all the necessities that we required. Beautiful rural setting, plenty of sporting equipment available at the house. And lots to do with in very close proximity e.g Horse riding boat trips, pitch and put etc.

“Great for a relaxing holiday, outdoor pursuits away from the hustle”
Reviewed 7 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We stayed at Lakeview House in July 2012 and had a great time. The house is comfortable and spacious. All the gear for outdoor pursuits is provided:Cycles, helmets, kayaks, life jackets, fishing gear etc. The hous is right on the river which should access the large lake nearby.

Management Response
27 Oct 2013
sports equipment includes, 3 kayaks 1 canoe plus eight bikes, and 5 fishing rods, all free to guests on our private land and river fronting onto lough derg. some guests during season will accidently damage a fishing rod or bike , we dont charge for this and maybe during a future guests stay, one rod or bike may need attention. we fix as soon as we are informed.our area unforunately suffers from limescale in the water, hard water. this may lead to a false impression of stain on a bathtup, we mantain but under great scrutiny this may appear as if not up to our high standards
